I want to play an adventure map with my friends but want to do it over my server so we don't need to use "Lan". How would I move the map into my server from my desktop?

  • We need more info, please. Is this server run on your computer, or is it a server that you purchased access for? – Tyler Kropp Jul 23 '15 at 21:36
  • @Tkdestroyer2, its not because I already have the server and want the map on the preexisting server. – Smartypants1800 Jul 23 '15 at 22:15
  • And it is run from my computer, I made it – Smartypants1800 Jul 23 '15 at 22:16
  • If that is the case, the answer should work. – Tyler Kropp Jul 23 '15 at 22:20
  • @Tkdestroyer2 Let's not dupe to a closed question, shall we? Even if it's a duplicate, a closed question should be deleted, not duped to. – Frank Jul 23 '15 at 22:55

I'm going to assume that you're running the server on your computer.

To use a map on a server, all you have to do is navigate into your saves directory within .minecraft, copy the folder containing the map you wish to use and paste it into the server directory's saves folder.

After that, you will need to modify this line in the server.properties file:


Change 'world' to whatever the name of your map folder is.

Hope this helped!

  • no, thats the problem – Smartypants1800 Jul 23 '15 at 22:21
  • @Smartypants1800 All server files will be next to, and in the same folder as, your minecraft server file (the one you run to start the server, which you downloaded from the Minecraft website). – Tyler Kropp Jul 23 '15 at 22:22
  • i run the server from a Jar not a folder – Smartypants1800 Jul 23 '15 at 22:22
